Unlike some windbreaks with complex setup procedures the Shore Striped Windbreak is a joy to erect. You will likely need assistance due to the size and potentially battling against the wind so hopefully you will have a camping partner on board to assist you. Think of the process as holding one end of the duvet each.
You should lay out the windbreak flat on the ground, then thread the poles. The poles are all pre-attached, so they will just need putting together. There are 4 poles in total per windbreak and assembling these should take no more than a couple of minutes.
Once you have fixed the poles into their sleeves (ensuing that the pole spikes are all facing groundward) you can then set up the windbreak in an upright position. It is always best to do this at an angle to the wind direction so that the windbreak not only creates an effective barrier to the wind but also transports the wind energy along the length of the wind break and away. Ordinarily a shallow angle of 20-45 degrees will suffice and will prevent the windbreak being a head on barrier.
Of course, the Shore Striped Windbreak can be used in such a fashion and be placed as a direct barrier at a 90-degree angle to the oncoming wind however this will likely cause wear and tear in the long run. When upright and pitched into the ground you will notice at the top of the two outside pole fixtures there are guy-lines which can be unravelled and then hooked into the ground. It is important when fixing guy-lines to do so with almost full tension in the cord. Still allow a fraction of play in the guy line as a heavy wind could potentially lift the windbreak and pull the fixtures, a completely tense guy-line then creates a very nasty catapult for the metal hook. Having a bit of play in the guy-line allows it to move a bit more naturally in the event something drastic happens.And that is it, from start to finish the process should take no more than 5 minutes.

Easy to set up your Shore Striped Windbreak
First, before all other considerations, you need to know which direction the wind is travelling in to set up the Windbreak effectively. You can buy equipment to determine the direction of the wind, some of it technical and complex, others basic (such as a windsock). We prefer the good old-fashioned way of licking the index finger, holding it up and rotating slowly until we feel the cold air hit.
Other indicators are as obvious as looking at nearby trees and seeing in which direction their branches are bending or if you’re close to calm waters seeing if the wind is causing ripples. You can even improvise with your own sock on a stick and see if you can catch the wind that way.
